It’s WOW Wednesday! HR leaders, execs, and managers: How do you WOW the people who go above and beyond for you in your business? Or, how have you been WOWed?
Today’s WOW Wednesday idea comes from Terryberry in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“To recognize the outstanding achievements of Terryberry employees in Michigan and beyond, Terryberry hosted a dinner celebration to honor the years-of-service award recipients. Honorees included welcome aboard awards and anniversary levels1 and 3, followed by increments of 5 years of service all the way to 50! WOW!
As your organization plans award celebrations, consider using Terryberry’s helpful tools to prepare your remarks for that special occasion. An Award Presentation Cheat Sheet and tips for Employee Recognition Speeches can be found at www.terryberry.com/tools.
Remember to personalize each aspect of the event for your employees. Use this as an opportunity to showcase how each contribution connects into the company’s mission, vision, and values. For example, you could prominently display special projects that people have worked on in the past year. This makes for a great conversation starter and encourages peer recognition!”
